A work for seven dancers, "Children’s Songs Dance" by Jessica Lang will be given two performances during the Fall Season of American Ballet Theatre.
Set to selections from "Children’s Songs" by the late American jazz composer Chick Corea, the ballet was created on ABT Studio Company in January 2020 during a residency at The Pocantico Center in Tarrytown, New York. The work was first seen on screen as part of ABT Studio Company Spring Festival, a program of filmed performances that aired online in June 2021.
The ballet is scheduled to receive its ABT Company Premiere on Aug. 9 as part of Lincoln Center’s BAAND Together Dance Festival.
This production of "Children’s Songs Dance" for the 2022 Fall Season will feature new costumes by Jillian Lewis and lighting by Nicole Pearce.
